Abstract

Increased fishing effort by coastal populations heavily dependent on coral reef fisheries in developing countries has led to overfishing, ecosystem degradation and reduced fish yields. This paper reviews the available information pertaining to the overfished reef fishery in Bolinao, Philippines. The impacts of fishing are evaluated through various fishing practices (both destructive and nondestructive), catch and effort information and species composition data from multiple gears. Management schemes through the application of both fishery regulations and environmental enhancement measures are suggested to ensure the viability of the ecosystem.
